Had augumentation 25 yrs ago Due to weight loss I had lift and rev in 3/11, due to extreme CC had rev again 6/11 (extensive surger). Chest muscles still extremely painful--only on right side again!! I have silicone under the muscle. Should I be concerned? Should I consider on top of the muscle? I have fibromyalgia and sjogrens, so my muscles are always painful and sore. What are my options? Thanks so much,

Your situation sounds complicated
Your particular situation sounds complicated. It appears that you have a number of reasons to be experiencing soreness. If it's been close to a year, and you still have significant pain, I think you are justified in being concerned. I don't know that moving the implants on top of the muscle would really make a big diiference. If your pain is related to capsular contracture once again, you may be better off having the implants removed and not replaced. This is a tough decision especially if you like how your breasts currently look. Still it is much more important for you to get your pain under control. I would recommend you get a couple opinions from board certified plastic surgeons in your city who can give you advice based on thorough exam.
